Easy to apply adhesive and if you use it right, it goes a long way. You better not be sloppy though, this glue is designed to be resistant to the extremes of its intended application. Cleaning up the spills and the mess is very difficult.

This adhesive is not appropriate for an installation requiring sharp bends, such as wrapping around plywood, or application to vertical surfaces. My boat has many such surfaces, (under-seat storage, etc.) and this will not hold the carpet in place while it sets. It does not tac like contact cement. I tested it in a small area and promptly realized it wasn't going to work. It was fairly easy to remove. It is similar in nature to Elmer's glue. I wish the product description was clearer about the nature and intended use of the product. Overton's does seem to be selling it for installing carpet in a boat. I wasted my money. I went out and purchased two gallons of contact cement and finished the job without difficulty. The original factory installation was done with contact cement and it had lasted 27 years.

            We bought a used Pontoon that was horribly neglected, so were trying to spruce it up with some new carpet.

            Delivered when they promised, The instructions were perfect, I have never laid any type of carpet before and this was so simple and a real solid hold. Would buy again and again !
            EASY clean up as well !

            GOOD STUFF !

              If applying to plywood in a 72 degree environment, roughly how long to allow to tack up before applying carpeting.

                A:

                Thank you for your question.

                No tack time needed – the average do-it-yourself person most likely may wait to long to allow it to tack (like you would with contact cement) Since this adhesive is water-based, you can simply apply carpet to the wet adhesive, smooth out any wrinkles, and let it cure in a dry environment for 24-48 hours (check edge to make sure completely cured before exposing to the elements).
                I hope this is helpful.

                A:

                It is only meant to be applied to marine grade plywood, not pressure treated plywood, because with pressure treated, the copper salts will leach out and disolve the adhesive and the rubber carpet backing.

                A:

                No it does not. The chemicals in the treated plywood don't allow for a good bond.

                A:

                The adhesive is water based, but unfortunately, there are so many different types of plastic, it is very hard to determine if it would work. If you would like to call in to our tech department at 1-888-683-7866, we would be happy to discuss this.
